More About Disobedience: the Sousa Mendes Story

WCHJ invites your family and friends to attend our special Holocaust remembrance program. We will present a special screening of the film “Disobedience: The Sousa Mendes Story”, which tells the story of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese Consul General stationed in Bordeaux, France, during World War II who defied orders from his government and issues more than 30,000 visas to people fleeing the Holocaust.

The Westchester Community for Humanistic Judaism invites all to come to this exciting program. The film showing will be followed by refreshments and discussion, and a Havdalah service. There is no admission fee (donations are welcome). The facility is wheelchair accessible.

More About this Event Poster: Westchester Community for Humanistic Judaism

The WCHJ community is a warm, supportive meeting place for non-theistic Jews and their families. We celebrate and explore our Jewish identity through thoughtful, creative and questioning engagement with Jewish traditions, ethics, and culture. Our members share a fundamental belief in the power of human reason and responsibility, rather than of supernatural authority.
